DH saw whiting and wanted it! So I found this among the ZWT 6 recipes. I loved the spices. I had 2 fillets cut the recipe to 2 servings. I am not fond of pan frying or deep frying but I did make it pan fried. I brought back memories! Almost like smelts. We did enjoy. Made for ZWT6 Thanks.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the cumin, turmeric, paprikas, and 1/2 tsp pepper in a small bowl.
  2. Sprinkle the fish with about 2 tsp of the spice mixture and a little salt if desired. The fish can be covered overnight or cooked immediately.
  3. When ready to fry, lightly coat the fish in flour, shake off the excess, and lay in a single layer on a tray.
  4. Pour enough oil in a frying pan to coat the bottom and heat over medium heat.
  5. Cook the fish in batches, turning only once, until golden brown on both sides.
  6. Transfer the fish to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.
  7. Serve warm or at room temperature with lemon wedges.
